William Webb
A Chestnut Hunter in an Extensive Landscape

1834

About

Equestrian portraiture holds a special place in eighteenth and nineteenth century English painting. “A Chestnut Hunter in an Extensive Landscape” by William Webb is both an attractive and strong example, which shows the kind of feeling and suppleness Webb brought to the horses he painted. In this particular portrait, Webb beautifully renders the delicate features of a Chestnut Hunter, accurately delineating the sleek musculature of the animal. Set within a wonderfully painted landscape colored by the lovely hues of an English summer, the natural sunlight captures the luster of the horse’s coat. In light of this noble portrait, one can easily understand the continuing interest in this genre of painting, and the mastery which Webb attained in this category.
